To get started, open the Cloud Explorer via the Tools > Google Cloud Tools menu.

Once you are logged in, the Cloud Explorer populates itself with your account’s projects and the resources associated with the currently selected project.

Cloud Explorer shows Cloud SQL instances associated with the selected project.
